My husband and I have been living apart since 2013. In 2014 he PCS’ed to El Paso TX and is now deployed. He emailed stating he is filing for a divorce because he wants to file for bankruptcy. He is having an attorney draft up the paperwork. At what point do I need to hire an attorney, once paperwork is received or prior to? How long do I have to review the documents once I am served? Is it best to settle out of court if we can agree on all terms? I gave him a list today of what I want in the divorce decree and he agreed to all terms. What are your thoughts?
We have been married for almost 10 years, we have 1 child together and he has 2 from a previous relationship.
I am asking for.
Child support 450 (your website says 615.00)
Increase in child support of 10% with each promotion
That he keeps our child covered with health insurance and dental
Pay half of any additional medical cost that isn’t covered by insurance
Half of college (half GI bill)
That I have primary custody
Visitation will be agreed upon with both parties.
Is there anything that I am missing that needs to be mentioned?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
